[OUTFIT] Sweet Vintage

I've always liked vintage styled dresses and peterpan collars. When I saw this dress at Dorothy Perkins, it was love at first sight! The prints, shift dress cut and peterpan collar, I was sold! <3 I'm not very tall so it was actually a little long for me, I had it hemmed and also took in the sides a little but not too much so it still had the shift dress cut. I paired it with a little bow for a touch of whimsy and a pair of vintage inspired shoes that reminds me of a cupcake because of its scallop trimmings. I wore this outfit for my sister's birthday dinner at Fish & Co.    
 Dress: Dorothy Perkins, Shoes: Trois & Inch, Bow Clip: Talismans, Bag: Charles & Keith

[OUTFIT] Twirling & Spinning to Summer's Song


These photos were taken for SheCaptivates outdoor lookbook when we launched our Lost & Found Collection. These are some of my favourite shots :) I've always loved vintage style, so the pieces I modeled for for this collection all had some vintage element to it. I remember while growing up, I loved rummaging through my mom and dad's old photos to see how they were like in their younger days and I loved some outfits my mom wore in those pictures! Those days where the full umbrella midi skirts and high waisted jeans were all the rage my my my! Even high waisted bikini bottoms have made a comeback. I don't have a particular style I stick to, I like to change styles but one style I find myself coming back to the most often is the vintage, retro style. Hahaha... Anyway, I had lots of fun at this shoot cos the evening sun was great and I had fun twirling and spinning to get the perfect shot. Tired of smiling? Never! :D

This Polkadot denim dress is also available in light wash.

[OUTFIT] Traipsing By The Quay

Alex and I went for a weekend staycation at Fullerton Hotel in June where I had the chance to take break from work. Alex had this special corporate rate so we thought, why not? :)

So glad to have this staycation cos ever since my mom brought my sis and me to her office and we walked through Fullerton when we were kids, I loved the beautiful grand staircase and the exterior décor of the hotel! As a kid, I was really fascinated with the revolving door, it always seemed to fun to go through it :D I even wanted to walk down the pretty grand staircase in my wedding gown! Talk about childhood dreams haha! But of course, I didn't hold my wedding there, we held it at Singapore flyer :D
We even had the chocolate buffet! Yummy!! But I will save that post for another time.

These photos were taken after an awesome alfresco breakfast along Singapore River! Though the haze condition in Singapore was quite bad then, it didn't dampen our spirits nor did it deter us from choosing alfresco seating :)

Wearing Becky Tropical Printed Blouse from SheCaptivates, highwaisted paperbag shorts from Dip Drops, sandals from Charles and Keith.

[OUTFIT] Sweet Macarons

Sweet Macarons is a look for a lookbook photoshoot with SheCaptivates. This outfit is basically me putting together some of my favourite pieces from the collection and adding my own touches to complete the outfit. We went to an old school carpark to shoot, the place was quite nostalgic. I'm wearing "Kelsey" multiway pinafore which has detachable straps and deliciously "Deliciuex" top! When I saw that top, I was spazzing. I know, I know, what?!?! but yea I have a soft spot for dessert prints on clothing. :) I even bought this ice-cream printed shortsfrom Forever 21 which I haven't worn. There are some days I feel like being all girly and vintage and there are also days where the edgier side of me comes out. I guess today is just one of my retrolicious pinup girl days where I put on Bruce Spring Springsteen's Hungry Heart and start dancing and twirling around. ;)
Happy Midweek!

This outfit features "Skyra", the varsity jacket from SheCaptivates. I paired it with simple jeggings that's super super comfy, graphic tee from Pull & Bear and one of my favourite shoes of all time; Zara kitten heels. These are the most comfortable pair of heels I own! Not only are they great for making all outfits look good, they are also comfy to walk in! One of my best buys from Zara, major love for this darling. ;) Accessorized with a simple black back rom Charles & Keith cos I wanted the focus to be on the varsity jacket. I wore this outfit for a movie double date to watch the cartoon "Turbo" and dinner. Yes, cartoon. I love how they can take your mind off those things that weigh you down! It was a good movie as its quite inspirational. I'm just a big kid at heart. :P 

Happy Tuesday!

I've been taking photos at this place recently, its cos I really like the lighting and the effect of the photos.

For this outfit, I bought my Aztec print cropped top from Topshop. What caught my eye were the colours! Not the usual black and white for Aztec prints. Honestly, I wasn't much of a fan of Aztec prints when it first became popular. It was on my "I won't ever wear this" list  but one day, I just thought 'what the heck, I'll just give it a shot'. That's how fashion is sometimes right? Like you think you'd never try this style but you'll never know if something suits you or doesn't suit you until you try.
Fashion is supposed to be fun! :)

Anyway, I decided to try it and I've never looked back ever since! :) I paired the cropped top with a simple black side slit maxi skirt that isn't easy to find at all. I've been searching for a straight cut black maxi skirt for the longest time and boy was I glad I finally found this piece at Cache Cache and at a SALE price of $20 yay!!!
Its not easy to find something that will fit wide hips and not cling on.
Cotton On had these long straight cut maxi skirts at one point and to my dismay, it didn't flatter me at all and so, I had to give it miss and continued my search.
Completed my look with wedge sneakers from Rubi and snapback cap which unfortunately SNAPPED! BOO! :( Hahaha...
I guess I'll just have to find a way to glue it back then. Wish me luck cos it snapped at the portion where you adjust the size.

So glad I don't have to work today cos its teacher's day! :D
SheCaptivates is launching a new collection tomorrow 7 Sept'13 at 7pm (GMT+8), our preview is up here!
Please please support! :D 

TGIF everyone! <3

an honest mistake.

sometimes when things happen, they happen for a reason. you learn from it. some lessons are easy, some aren't. most often than not, lessons are difficult. we may have acted out on our anger and we hurt people intentionally or unintentionally. what can one do when faced with such a situation? to look the problem in the eye and deal with it maturely? or to act out in anger and further aggravate the situation? what do you think?
